PyeongChang Organizing Committee Unveils Emblem For 2018 Winter Paralympics

The PyeongChang Organizing Committee for the 2018 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games "unveiled its emblem for the Paralympics Tuesday at the National Museum of Korea in Seoul," according to Jung Min-ho of the KOREA TIMES. POCOG President Kim Jin-sun said, "The true meaning of Paralympics lies in transcending barriers between people and people with physical challenges and creating a society without prejudice. The emblem is the symbol of the movement." The emblem is designed using the Korean character, "Chang." The POCOG explained that "the shape of the word embodies snow, ice and winter sports, and the use of two 'Changs' symbolizes the harmony between Olympians and Paralympians" (KOREA TIMES, 10/29).
